My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Gift of Charms is a children’s fantasy story I would suggest a reading age around 9-12 years. The story is about dragons and the hidden land they live in. It opens with the hatching of a special egg and the birth of Yoshiko born to the Nephan clan. There are seven clans in the Land of Dragor and the dragons from each clan vary in colour and special abilities.
We next meet Yoshiko a 10 year old dragon attending his first day of Fire School where he makes both friends and enemies as they are taught to breath fire, fly and enter the hot fire pits. Yoshiko has an embarrassing trait, he changes colour and he doesn’t know why until one day he flies off and meets the mysterious dragon called Guya.
Guya understands that Yoshiko is different and sets him three tasks to test his strength and determination. If he can prove himself he’ll get some answers and an important quest.
A good book for younger readers who enjoy the fantasy genre.
